Mbappe vs Giroud: Pogba clears air on ‘rift’ between France teammates

Published

on

France midfielder, Paul Pogba, has cleared the air on a ‘rift’ between teammates, Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud.

Recall that Mbappe felt ‘attacked’ and ‘angry’ following Giroud’s comments that he was unhappy with France’s lack of cohesion in attack after Didier Deschamps’s side defeated Bulgaria 3-0 in their final Euro 2020 warm-up game on Tuesday evening.

Reacting to the development, Pogba insisted that there is a ‘great atmosphere’ in the French camp ahead of their Euro 2020 campaign.

Asked whether there has been any tension or rift between Giroud and Mbappe, Pogba told a pre-match press conference ahead of the Euro 2020 campaign: “No, the only tension is on the back and legs!

“There is always a great atmosphere with everyone. Between Olivier and Kylian, there is nothing. Or at least there has been nothing in front of me.

“Maybe what was said was conveyed incorrectly,” he added.

France kicks off their Euro 2020 campaign against Germany next Tuesday.

The World Cup champions will also face Portugal and Hungary in Group F.

Ferdinand, Shearer, Lineker predict Euro 2020 winner

Published

Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand and Gary Lineker have all predicted that France will win Euro 2020.

The French will expect to add a continental triumph to their World Cup success.

Dider Deschamps’ team conquered the world in Russia three years ago, with the squad still boasting of Paul Pogba, Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and N’Golo Kante.

Karim Benzema has also returned from a five-year exile to add more strength to the already deadly attack.

“France to win it. They have got talent all over the pitch,” Shearer told the BBC.

Ferdinand added: “France have got the most depth and the most talent, that is why they are my favourites.”

Lineker however believes defending champions Portugal could yet retain their crown, but has still backed Les Bleus.

“It’s hard to look beyond France – they were losing finalists five years ago, they won the World Cup three years ago and now they have Karim Benzema too.

“They will be improved and they have brilliant young players too. They have to be favourites.

“Portugal are not exactly an outsider because they won the thing four years ago but they have a very good team and they will have a chance,” he said.
